Track Name: Don't Leave Part 1
He picks her up on a Saturday
throws her in the car and drives away takes her out to the theatre,
doesn't know why but it ain't no passion play
and he feels like its all gone over
no fear looking over his shoulder
don't kill me, lord you still thrill me
don't do it, say what you want to believe
Don't Leave

He knows that it's all been wearing thin
but maybe its gonna pick up after a while
but she says she's gonna be leaving him
and blows him into pieces with her smile
and he feels like its all gone over
no fear looking over his shoulder
don't kill me, lord you still thrill me
don't do it, say what you want to believe
Don't Leave

He knows the mess that he's gotten in
he's aware of the fact that he brought it onto himself
he wants to beg her to go to him
but he knows if he did then it wouldn't be any help
and he feels like a waste of space
does she see the horror in his face?
don't kill me, lord you still thrill me
don't do it, say what you want to believe
Don't Leave
Track Name: Go Far
Wake up and smell the roses
that grow in such profusion around your bed
look up the sky is falling
in oh so may colours around your head
don't take it so serious
don't forget that you're one of us
and lets go far

shut up and listen to what I'm saying
cos I don't appreciate talking to myself
shut up, let me know what you're thinking
and I might be the only one who cares

between putting up, shutting up and never giving in
giving up, giving, never telling anybody

look up, the sky is falling,
or are you busy leaning on the bar
sit up, take a look in the mirror boy
did you get that rock star lotion from a jar?
Track Name: Questions
Tell me do you remember
The smile on my face and the way that we felt deep inside
The smell of the roses
That drifted on by
From the window outside

And later in the evening
When the sun goes to sleep and the night gets tired
With the bells of cathedrals, ringing in my ears
And I keep on wondering

Who’s holding you now
Who’s showing you how
Who’s painting the pictures in your mind
And why did I leave it all behind

Take a look at those pictures
A warm summers day and a cold dark night
Tell me do they seem familiar
Or is it all a lie?
Tell me why ‘cos I keep on wondering
